It's been a long time but we got to halibut fish three days in a row and they were biting. Several fish between 50/6lbs - average 25/35lbs. with some releasing and throwing back fish on the end on all three days for both boats. It was fun. River salmon died hard and fast on Tuesday with dropping levels and warmer temps. Could rebound with cooler days and rain. We finished up the week on a bumpy ocean, dirty water and a very very scratchy bite from the Ling Cod (only three were caught on the 'Rogue'). Lucky for all the rock fish were biting for nice limits and lots of color and jumbo Vermillion. Oh yea, decent crabbing to boot.

River fishing was quite good early in the week for two to five fish for a day which was a good thing as the ocean was a bust with 20/25 gusting to 30kt wind through Thursday. Friday it was pancake with limits for all and even a 50lb. flat one on Jeff's boat. Saturday was OK but not perfect with limits. Sunday was half crummy but they were biting better than Saturday so it worked out. Jeff even dinged a couple salmon upriver Sunday afternoon to finish the week. River, bottom fish and halibut this next week and the forecast looks OK. Hope a hope it works.

After four days the ocean laid down Wednesday for some nice bottom fish action. We spent more time in deeper water with a slow drift and caught lots of color and bigger Ling Cod. A fuel pump issue on the 'Pacific' stalled the halibut fishing for Jeff and his crew so they re-did bottom fish for a ditto. I did go for halibut for a slow bite and came home with four. Friday a surprise front came through to bust the day but did give Jeff a chance to pull a rabbit out and fixed the fuel pump/ Saturday and Sunday it was bottom fish with Saturday the best day for catching and conditions.
